NG Bailey again supporting Clydebank facility’s expansion
NG Bailey’s Engineering division has secured a second contract to support the ongoing expansion of NHS Golden Jubilee in Clydebank in Scotland.
The winning of the £15 m contract represents the second time the major independent engineering and services provider has been appointed by the principal contractor, Kier Regional Building Services, Scotland, to support the hospital’s expansion plan. During 2020, the company delivered the mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations (MEP) for phase one of the expansion, a new six-theatre eye centre, which began receiving patients in November 2020. Work on the second phase of the National Treatment Centre is already under way, and is expected to be completed by June 2023. It will enable the NHS Golden Jubilee to undertake thousands of additional hip and knee replacements and other orthopaedic procedures annually, as well as significantly expanding diagnostic testing and general surgery.
A team of NG Bailey engineers, including apprentices, will be on site to support the delivery of the new three-storey development, which will include theatre suites, orthopaedic amenities, outpatient and pre-operative spaces, a surgical admissions and recovery unit, a central sterilising and processing department, and a new endoscopy unit. Modern Methods of Construction are being widely used across the project, while many of the service installations – including heavy duty service modules, plant room skids, and plant room frames, are being manufactured at NG Bailey’s specialist offsite manufacturing facility.
The building will also incorporate a range of energy-saving measures, including high- efficiency heating, cooling, and ventilation systems, presence-controlled lighting systems, and a heat recovery system serving the operating theatres.
